Stroke remains a primary cause of morbidity throughout the world mainly because of its effect on cognition. Individuals can recover from physical disability resulting from stroke, but might be unable to return to their previous occupations or independent life because of cognitive impairments.
Post-stroke cognitive impairment is not a unitary syndrome but incorporates a variety of deficits in multiple domains such as attention, executive functions , memory, language and visuoperceptual abilities. Cognitive impairment occurs in up to 64% of people who have had a stroke and has been associated with a 3-fold increase in risk for mortality, institutionalization and decreased instrumental activities of daily living function.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
